    We didn't test them on the OBS :neutral:, not sure what is on the market for you.

    Hey Jenna Bear. I believe I've seen you on another club I've paroused through maybe. Glad to see you finally got over to the GMTC. Welcome. Good informational post, I'm actually currently in the market for a cold air intake.

    I personally like the AEM Brute Force and the K&N 77 Series, they had great results on the dyno.

    Good to see you over here too :great:. Hopefully my write up helped you out a bit :rules:, not trying to promote any specific brand, just want to help folks be a bit more educated rather than just going off of what manufacturers claim.

    Here are the results of our intake test-

    From top to bottom on the horsepower curve on the graph is:
    AEM no filter
    Stock with KNN drop in filter
    Stock with Fram airhog

    i have a k&n on mine, and it has been there since i bought the truck, i was thinking about switching to a volant intake, about 2/3 of my daily drive to work is highway, but i do a lot of intown driving. i also like to play a lot. do you think this would be a good switch? i know you said its mostly personal preference, but i have heard more good about volant than i have k&n

    Thanks for posting those dyno numbers. I think I'll stick with the stock air box and K&N filter. Maybe do the stock air box mod and add a smooth coupler.

    Would you have some dyno numbers of the gains with air box and long tube headers? Before and after tuning also? (maybe you could post in a separate thread).
